  1. Beat me to it!! Looks good from the pics, considering how bad some of these get. Bargain at that price (unless it’s rotten as a peach underneath)
  2. Citroen AX 4x4 1.4 anyone? https://www.shpock.com/en-gb/i/XKY3ZpQrV1FebbGf/citroen-ax-4x4-1996
  3. Do you know, I never knew there was such a thing as a 780 until I saw that.
  4. Clearly every effort made to present the car at its best for the advert.
  5. Very tempting this.......I will see if this clashes with any other events/commitments but this sounds like an grand idea
  6. Volvo 240 porn https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F264482092589
  7. Are you just doing this with hammer, chisel and teeth? These fleece discs are great for any paint, filler and underseal removal. Pricey, but they don't smear or clog like flap wheels and do speed things up. You're making speedy progress though, keep us updated 🙂
  8. Many thanks to ruffgeezer for the first class sticker service I also fabricated and replaced the battery box, bare metalled the engine bay, and started restoring the heater in my '63 Falcon
  9. If it is the same one, that’s a fantastic story and huge coincidence!!
  10. I'd dispute that........I'm 26, work for a small "old school" engineering company specialising in vintage engine rebuilds, and love it. There's young interest out there still, you just need to look a bit harder to find it.
  11. What gearboxes did these have? Are they unique to these cars?
  12. Replaced the clutch on the 205 this weekend. Actually removed the box last weekend, but have been stripping and cleaning it throughout the week too. Besides the clutch and gearbox oil, I also treated her to a new fuel filter, air filter, thermostat, and a thorough engine bay clean. I got so carried away I even took the gearbox casing and all the underbonnet plastic air ducts and filter housings into work and put them through our chemical cleaner. And fitted new fog lights.... Then took her for a test drive, ending in a celebratory baguette purchase.......
  13. Looks solid indeed. I like old Saabs, so this thread has my interest piqued and a follow added. What's the plans for the engine and drivetrain? Is the engine a runner or are you rebuilding that too?
  14. Ah you beat me to that 940 😂 I was keen, but alas my PM was a day too late. Out of curiosity, I gather the NA 2.0 variety of 900 series are truly gutless. Just how much slower does it feel compared to your previous 2.3 turbo manual? I’d really like a 2.3 turbo manual 940....
  15. Ordinarily I would be; I get free tickets with work. But this year I’m missing it and shall instead be under the influence of beer and nitromethane at Santa Pod for three days. The Beaulieu exhibitors car park can normally present some some good chod sporting opportunities though
